Dilators, Surgical, Vascular

Definition : Surgical dilators designed for mechanically augmenting the caliber of the vasculature (usually arteries) during surgery. These surgical dilators typically consist of an instrument with an oblique distal end that expands arteries with vasoconstriction. This prevents damage to adjacent tissue and other areas of the body due to a decrease or loss in the amount of blood flow. Vascular dilators are usually inserted into vessels with very little pressure to minimize the risk of injuries. These dilators can be dedicated for use during surgical procedures involving the dilation of the coronary, pulmonary, and other main arteries.
